Commentary on Christopher Reed Hit-and-run Accident in Harris County

It's just shameful to see a young man's life changed forever and for another driver involved to just leave him behind without remorse. Recent details suggest that the victim could have died had someone not called for help as soon as they did. There should be appropriate consequences legally, and that could be a rather complex process. Especially considering the reported behavior of the suspect driver prior to the collision, my concern is they may have fled to hide something specific like drunk driving.

That's an all too common factor down in Harris County. Investigating those possibilities could even result in unique legal avenues to potentially get this family the help they need. Charges against a runaway driver are obviously important, but if someone else contributed to this awful event and can be held accountable, they, too, should answer for their actions. That's especially true when those consequences can get someone some much needed help.
